PJTN Leader Calls On Speaker Pelosi To Rescind Omar Appointment To House Foreign Relations Committee
PJTN LEADER CALLS ON SPEAKER PELOSI TO RESCIND OMAR APPOINTMENT TO HOUSE FOREIGN RELATIONS COMMITTEE
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
(Nashville-TN) – January 21, 2019 –Proclaiming Justice to The Nations founder and president, Laurie Cardoza-Moore, is today calling upon Christians, Jews and all people of conscience to contact U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to demand that she immediately rescind the appointment of Rep. Ilhan Omar to the House Foreign Relations Committee. Noted Cardoza-Moore in issuing the call-to-action: “This appointment is an outrageous and arrogant slap in the face to Americans who refuse to tolerate anti-Semitic comments by elected officials.”
In 2012, Omar tweeted, "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel."
“Although Rep. Omar’s constituents may support her anti-Semitic views, the majority of Americans do not,” stated Cardoza-Moore. “She is not qualified for any appointment. Committee appointments in the House are not required of any elected official and should never be given to a racist. For Mrs. Pelosi to issue this appointment is a slap in the face to Jews, Christians and all people of conscience who object to Omar’s false assumptions and beliefs.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-California) said in a statement on Thursday: "Anti-Semitism has no place in Congress and certainly not on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. I am deeply disappointed in Speaker Pelosi’s choice, a choice that threatens the Committee’s long history of bipartisan support for Israel."
Minority Whip Steve Scalise, (R-L) noted, “It was disgraceful that Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat majority gave a coveted seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee to a member who has a documented history of making anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks."
PJTN’s call to action posed the query: Could it be that Omar is uneducated and ill-informed, or is she spreading disinformation and promoting the narrative that Jews are controlling the world as they have “hypnotized the world”?
Follow-up PJTN commentary noted:
In Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler was quoted saying, “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
One of the greatest theologians in the last century, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, lived a radically different life than most Christians of his time. Unlike most Christians, he spoke out against the genocidal anti-Semitic ideology of National Socialism. His opposition ultimately led to his execution in 1945 by the Nazi regime, just four days before the liberation of Germany.
Christians should look to Bonhoeffer as a role model and rise up in opposition to the Democrat Party and its anti-Semitic, socialist agenda. Once again, this age-old hatred has infiltrated the highest offices of a democratic government and thus demands a firm stand from Christians, Jews and all people of conscience today.
Who stands firm? Only the one for whom the final standard is not his reason, his principles, his conscience, his freedom, his virtue, but who is ready to sacrifice all these, when in faith and sole allegiance to God he is called to obedient and responsible action: the responsible person, whose life will be nothing but an answer to God's question and call. - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Take action today! Join us as at PJTN and become a Watchman against anti-Semitism.
Noted PJTN’s founder in conclusion: “I am encouraging Americans to call Speaker Pelosi’s office in Washington today at (202) 225-0100 and express their opposition to this disgraceful appointment.”
